Subjectdrm/nouneau: 5.11 cycle regression bisected to 461619f5c324 "drm/nouveau: switch to new allocator"

The symptom is tasks stuck waiting for lord knows what by calling
sched_yield() in a loop (less than wonderful, sched_yield() sucks).
After boot to KDE login, I immediately see tracker-extract chewing cpu
in aforementioned loop. Firing up evolution and poking 'new' to
compose, WebKitWebProcess joins in the yield loop fun.

Hand rolled reverts of 256dd44b "drm/ttm: nuke old page allocator" and
the fingered commit cures the problem for me at 207665fd in the bisect
log below, and at master and tip HEAD.

There's a "things that make ya go hmm" aspect to this thing though. If
you look at the bisect log below, the starting "bad" is 207665fd. That
commit DOES NOT exhibit the yield loop symptom immediately out of the
box, but DOES after applying the much needed fix...

660a59953f4f "drm/nouveau: fix multihop when move doesn't work" prevent an earlier regression from quickly appearing, one which
Dave will likely recall having fixed. Relevant? No idea, but seems
worth mentioning.

Box: aging generic i4790 box with its equally aged Nvidia GTX 980.

461619f5c3242aaee9ec3f0b7072719bd86ea207 is the first bad commit
